Damnit! It's still technically wrong though, regardless of when it came out.

So?

It's a marketing term anyway doesn't mean anything

Its all marketing blurb at the time.

Similar to how I could state that the Commodore 64 was the most advanced home pc ever. You just need to refer back to when it was released

Stupid marketing.
You can get the Palit card for only £489.98 - HERE! which is a much better card, with a better cooler than this blower, sorry, not a great deal.

EDIT: Oh, and if you are not in a hurry, then if you look at the deal I posted this morning you can get the KFA GTX 1080 OC for £454.95, so that makes this deal look even worse, sorry OP

Pretty sure the most advanced is the 1090.
Hard to find on the shelves though.

Total cost £555 plus labour and risk of messing it up; you might as well stretch for a Ti if you are willing to spend this much.

Palit has what, 2 years, 1 year warranty ? No resale value.

Wow, I didn't realise items became valueless when the warranty ran out, tut imagine not knowing that after all these years. Guess we just have to hope that after 2 years it doesn't go wrong.
Jeez these things are expensive (in comparison to a whole console system). My budget is around the 1060 6GB but I'm really trying to hold out for a decent 1070 Ti. Might be a while....

To be fair I’ve read so many comments that basically state that for 1080p at 60fps the 6gb 1060 is all the power you’ll ever need. With prices coming down now for the first time in what seems like forever, there is seemingly light ahead.

Yeah that is the downside with Palit and Gainward, they only do 2 year warranty IIRC. Most others come with 3.

Having said that to my knowledge EVGA are the only company that provides a properly transferable warranty to the second owner. Most others do not support the second owner or do not offer full coverage so when you see people selling their second hand card with "X years warranty remaining" just be cautious... it sounds good until you read the small prints.

Get the best you can afford (within reason, very few people will get the most from a 1080 TI). a couple of years ago people were saying a 4 core i5 and 1060 would be good for many years to come..... wrong.

Worse case scenario with the big brands is that you'll need the original receipt. Small brands will be a nightmare when it comes to claim anyway, original owner or not.

Big brands are the only ones to go for if you resell and update your rig every two years, I've been doing that forever.

The biggest caveat was with PNY: they used to give life warranties! But made them non transferrable. It's over now and they're now the best ones: you just need to give the serial number. Two years only though.

Some brands just give one year!

I don’t get it? Why are the wrong in the 1060 isn’t going to be good for years to come? Genuine question btw.

I agree with you. I'm still using an i7 920, with a 5850 GPU from 2009 and its fine.

I have a funny feeling my cpu is now the bottle neck. Running a i5 35xx standard intel cpu with a gtx 770 and 8gb of ddr3 ram. Does anyone have an opinion on it?

It depends on what the issue is, or what you are trying to do that you can't do (or your pc you feel is slow to do).

Apologies if I am telling you what you might already know, but find out what the recommended spec is for the game you are playing and compare that to your components.

In most cases its the GPU which will make the biggest difference, but in other cases the CPU makes a difference too (for example, I play FlightSim X, which almost exclusively uses the CPU.. and only 1 processor... so I need a CPU which has a fast single processor speed).

So in summary, look at the recommended spec for a game and compare that to your PC.

Thanks for the tip. Yeah I did and do still pay attention the recommend spec for the games I play. I did think the GPU is the most important bit of equipment. Its just I like to max out the games at 1080p with all the affects.

Personally, I wouldn't over complicate it. If you want to improve your gaming graphics because you are currently not happy, then buy a new GPU.

The real decision is how much you want to spend, and if now is the time you want to spend it?
